Takajärvi – a perch paradise with clear waters

Lake Takajärvi in Hattula is a rugged and clear-watered lake surrounded by coniferous forests. The lake’s top ice fishing catch is perch. It typically swims in schools in the vicinity of the shore and can bite astonishingly well at times. On these types of small lakes, the size of the fish can also come as a surprise. Along with all the small individuals, you might very well end up catching perch weighing up to one kilogram.

If you go trolling in midsummer, you might also catch pike and pike-perch in addition to perch. For the best results, try using blue-silver-toned lures. Good choices include Rapala Jointed wobblers, Kuusamo Räsänen and Mepps and Laxman spinners.
